The forthcoming BMW 3 Series Touring has been spotted again, this time with a considerable shedding of camouflage compared to its previous sighting. Here, we get to see the long-roofed version of the latest 3 Series almost entirely uncloaked especially at its front end, revealing that it shares this section with the sedan version.

Another, previous sighting also revealed its interior, from which we can see that the station wagon – codenamed G21 – shares a front occupant cabin section that is virtually identical to that of the 3 Series sedan. As seen in the following image, The G21’s rear end remains similarly concealed as before, though this is merely a wrap rather than any cladding which hides its shapes.

This is in line with the patent images of the G21 that were filed. On the powertrain front, the forthcoming G21 3 Series Touring is expected to carry the same range of engines as the sedan. This will include a 184 hp/300 Nm 2.0 liter turbo four petrol mill in the 320i, a 258 hp/400 Nm unit of the same capacity and configuration for the 330i, a 150 hp/320 Nm and 190 hp/400 Nm 2.0 litre diesel for the 318d and 320d respectively, and a 265 hp/580 Nm 3.0 litre straight-six diesel in the 330d.

So far, it appears that the G21 will forego development of a full-on M3, as the case has been in the past, save for concepts. The most potent long-roofed 3 Series for now is the M340i xDrive, which summons a 3.0 litre biturbo inline-six petrol engine with 374 hp and 500 Nm of torque.
